Classic Algebra: Introduction to Sets, Functions and Graphs
Herb Gross defines the meaning and terminology of the mathematical concepts sets, functions and graphs. Functions are defined as the program in a process that takes an input, follows the program (rules) and produces an output. In this context, arithmetic is likened to knowing the input and program and determining the output; algebra is compared to knowing the output and the program and determining the input; finally Analytic Geometry is comparable to determining the function when you know the graph (that is, the ordered pair of input and output).
